Each month, every school has the chance to win the Active School Travel Golden Boot trophy along with a $100 HART Sport voucher. The Golden Boot is the AST inter-school competition that recognises the best performing schools across a whole range of active travel activities.
This year’s competition kicks off in March as schools compete to have the highest percentage of students actively travelling. There are two Golden Boots up for grabs, one for schools in their first year of the program and the other for schools in their second or third year of AST. The categories change each month to allow different schools to showcase their strengths.
The categories for 2019 are:
|March||Highest % active travel|
|April||Most improved from baseline|
|May||Highest % walking|
|June||Highest % cycling|
|July||Highest % public transport|
|August||Highest % car pooling|
|September||Highest % scootering|
|October||Most improved from baseline - schools under 600 students|
|November||Most improved from baseline - schools over 600 students|
The inter-school Golden Boot competition complements inter-class competitions. In fact, many schools adopt the Golden Boot categories for their own inter-class competitions each month and tailor activities to promote the different active travel modes.
It’s time to get planning! What is your strategy to win the Golden Boot this year?
